"Free Georgia" Appeals to the Parliamentary Majority
04-07-2017  

Parliament of Georgia will be considered the amendments in the Election Code with the third reading. The draft law includes a number of issues, some of which have been criticized by opposition parties over the last few months.


One of the amendments concerns the right of a citizen to take part in the Mayor's and local governmentelections. According to current legislation, a citizen has no right to participate simultaneously in mayors’ and council’s election, what puts indiscriminatory condition opposition parties and restricts free competition with the ruling party.


As was promised over the meeting with the Venice Commission,"Free Georgia" appeals to the parliamentary majorityto be constructive and not to postpone the issue with the third reading.


At the same time, we express our readiness and call on the government to start negotiations on other problematic issues of electoral legislation in the near future, where compromising projects can be developed.
